Day by day program

Day 1 - Sunday: Arrive at Grønolen Mountain Farm.
Delicious 3 course dinner and information about the program.

Day 2 - Monday: Marabøtthødnet
We drive towards the mountains, through several idyllic summer farms. We go north on an unmarked route to the east of the mountain called Marabøtthødnet. After a while, we get to a marked trail from Bygdin and follow the trail to the summit. From there we go 400 meters north to a great viewpoint to see the mountains in great peaks in Jotunheimen National Park. Lunch break at an idyllic little pond before going home.
4-5 hours, medium level

Day 3 - Tuesday: Bukkehamaren (1910 m.a.s.l.)
It takes about 3.5 hours to reach the summit (a vertical drop of about 900 m). At the summit, you’ll experience great views towards Lake Gjende and Besseggen.
7-8 hours, medium/demanding level

Day 4 - Wednesday: Synshødn and Heimre Fagerdalshøe followed by lunch at a mountain summer farm.
From the mountain summer farm Hålistølen we start by following a sandy moraine. It’s a little steep in the beginning. We make short breaks and enjoy the view. Eventually, we reach the summit and enjoy splendid views towards Lake Bygdin with the peaks in Jotunheimen National Park in a distance. We descend, using the so-called ‘Track of the Germans’ towards our mountain summer farm, where we are treated with a traditional dish of sour cream porridge and cured meat.
3-4 hours, medium level

Day 5 - Thursday: Svartdalen
We start the trip aboard the venerable boat at Bygdin lake. We leave the boat at Torfinsbu and walk up towards Svartdalen. This tour is quite easy but classy among the walks in Jotunheimen - sandwiched between tall, wild peaks. In Svartdalen we walk along three lakes before the descent towards Gjendebu. From there we go by boat on the Gjende lake to Gjendesheim.
Walking time approx. 5 hours + boat and bus. Medium/demanding level
